Google Indexes New Blogs With Few Delays

Blogspot, WordPress users probably in the clear

Owners of new Blogspot or WordPress sites may worry that Google won't index them. And we can't guarantee that Google will do so quickly, or even that the search giant will do so at all. There's a fair amount of evidence suggesting that things will be taken care of sooner rather than later, however.

We'll start with the slightly disquieting stuff. On the WebmasterWorld forum, "dhirajch" writes, "I think it is not always. but yes definetly much more faster than any website."Google Indexes New Blogs With Few Delays

The other less-than-assuring piece of information comes from Ted Ulle, who states, "Without any external links, google is not likely to index any site, whether it's a blog or not. They're definitely not likely to keep in the index for very long even, if they do discover the url somehow."

But people like "IncrediBILL" and Tamar Weinberg, along with at several others, have said there's little to worry about. Several examples were given in which Blogspot or WordPress sites showed up in Google's search results either quickly or without any effort on the author's part.

In the end, maybe it's best to toss a few outside links into a piece to make sure. Also, all the other usual SEO tips are liable to help, as well. But it seems like no special actions are necessary (and no anxiety is in order) when trying to get a new blog indexed by Google. (By Doug Caverly)
